    I talked to my cable bozo's so many times about this - and 80% of the time thay act like they have NEVER ever heard of this problem. It happens to us on a regular - almost daily basis. I've replaced our boxes several times - and it keeps happening. The only people who have admitted it is an ongoing issue- has been the guys that come to the house. One mentioned something about a "waitlist" to have us addresses first when a better one comes out. I think that is a dream though - because of how dumb the folks on the phone act. When it acts up like that more than one time during something I watch - I just watch the commericials. I also tell my husband to NEVER trust the cable box. If you are interested in something - just pausing it is not going to mean you'll get to watch it. Just record it! That way if it goes on craptastic auto pilot - you can still go to your recordings and play it over. I've had TW since they took over for comcast in north texas - and it's always been like this with them. Comcast - i never remember then having any problems like this.

You may want to try fast forwarding at 2x (that is, press the FF key twice), although the speed will be faster, it may actually stop for you, when you press play, rather than going to the end.

Directv DVR vs Tivo


I found the manual for that model online, and according to it, the "Live TV" button should function exactly the same way your old Tivo did.

If it's not working correctly, you may want to contact the manufacturer, assuming it's still under warranty.

Program prompting to be deleted before it was finished


Sounds like your DVR is running out of space try to free up some space on the DVR.Also there is a little bit of space at the end of the show after it prompts you to delete the show not much though.If you have plenty of space on the DVR simply increase the time it records by 3 minutes.that should take care of your problem.
